Wildlife: Banana Spider

A Banana spider spun a web on the side of my house. It stayed there for several weeks.

I bet he ate a large number of bugs while he was there. I once had one of those outside our window and I enjoyed watching it for a long time. They are amazing. Thanks for posting!

This banana spider has been on our back deck for about two weeks now. He is absolutely beautiful with his brilliant colors. I have been photographing him at different times during the day since we found him. We noticed that he makes a new web every other day.

I like to touch the web and make the spider do his thing. He will start shaking the web. I think this is the way he catches his prey.
